Feb 13–Mar 16
On these dates, enjoy reduced admission ($19 adults; $14 seniors and students) and see Fast Forward and Human Interest. Two floors are closed as we prepare for the 2017 Biennial.
Join educator Alexandria Wailes for a free tour in American Sign Language of T. J. Wilcox: In the Air, with voice interpretation. The tour begins at 4 pm, with a free pre-tour reception from 3–4 pm.
For T. J. Wilcox: In the Air, the New York–based artist has created a remarkable new panoramic film installation, which fills up most of the second floor of the Whitney Museum of American Art. Here Wilcox revisits the “cinema in-the-round” panoramic presentations that appeared at the dawn of film history in the late 19th century, bringing the concept up to date with state-of-the-art technology to create an immersive cinematic environment.
Admission to tour and reception is free with RSVP. ASL students are welcome to attend with student admission to the Museum. Museum staff/interpreters will not be able to sign student assignments.
